The Blue-crowned Lorikeet, Vini australis, is a parrot found throughout the Samoa and Tonga islands and Lau archipelago. This individual was photographed in the Blackburn Pavilion, a large indoor tropical aviary at the London Zoo in England.

I wanted to share this image of an adult blue-crowned lory that I photographed at the London Zoo a couple days ago. More zoo bird images are coming as soon as I have a stable wifi connection.
